Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBKIDGE DAILY HERALD ,.Tune21st, In These Days No Merchant Can be Successful Unless He Represents You BY J. R. HAMILTON Manager of. Wanamaker's Philadelphia I Republ C1 IFTY years ago every stpre had a 1 "barker" just as eyery sideshow has now. He was not. so loud, but he was equally insistent He stood on the side- walk in front of his -store and urged you to come in. When you entered, he rang a b'e.11. .You were surrounded by highwaymen and there immediately began a system of- brigand- age was not .even surpassed by hold-up men on lonely roads. The first business of these io-called salesmen was to find out how much nancy you had. Every ruse was resorted to to got you to open your' wallet or your purse. The second object was to get as much of thai money as possible aud his value to his concern was measured' entirely by your loss. This is not romance; It is history. Not the worst stores, but many ot the belt stores did it. The only price on an article was the hiflhett price you would pay. The law of Emptor (let the buyer beware) was the Com- mercial Law of tho land. It was understood that you and the merchant were commercial enemlei and that you were his legi- timate prey. Such thingi as a definite price or. the returnablllty of merchan- dise or a guarantee ot zood faith would have been considered fool- hardy. Now, out oi all this chicanery, this cross-roads bartering, this world-old hostility of buyer and seller, have come the clean, whole- aome, truitworthy initltutloni of the present day. And the one great factor that has brought this change about is ADVERTISING And the reason to rthis is that a man is. nat- urally far more careful of ,what he writes than of what he merely Bays. To-day you walk into a store with as much confidence as you enter your home. You feel that every possible safe-guard is thrown about you for your protection. The merchant, where he once was your commercial enemy, has become your business re- Your pleasure is his command. Me will do any- thin? within to meet your smallest request. Even the manii- fcoturera and big distributors have caught this feeling that they must .represent you, or you will not patronize them. This is thV great thing that Advertising has -done for trade. peculiar part of it is that you feel this safety, this reliab- ility, this surety of fair play only toward .those who advertise. That is 'Why the cblumna of this paper should mean so much to you. That 'Is 'why you should make this adver Using a part of your daily news. That ii why you ahould btgin to today, and continue to read it every day.for everything you buy. ican Convention Still Scene of Factional right (Continued 'from front pngrt. Chairman Hoot announced the first business to bo tho report of tho com- mittee on credentials. The report re- commended the seating of the Tat't delegates in the ninth Alabama dis- trict.

All of them, together with twenty that the credeli- lals committee took up on its own in- itiative, were settled lor President Taft. California's ttwo Taft delegates were seated by the committee at 5.-la lock this morning, a long de- bate. A motion to. seat the Roose- veil delegates was defeated by 2S to 16.

For an hour and u half the committee mem- bers, worn out by over twenty hours of wort, sat and .debated the right of California to instruct for Roosevelt j by a State-wide majority, the Taft delegates elected in the fourth dis- trict. Tile debate of the California case followed the receipt of what was termed an "insulting letter'1 from the two Roosevelt delegates, Charles S.

Whilo a knighthood is, In one sense, honor 'from the Sovereign, still it Ji recognized that, such honer comes through the recommendation of the .Canadian government. Now, before tie luighiwg of Mr. Hoblln and Mr. IMoBridV by tie .present government, there were two other Canadian pio- Tinoial premiers: who anjoyed that honor. Theie were .Sir. James Whit- ney, a.

OF BUSINESS MEN -Since the confirmation of tlic re- port by General Manager Bury oE Lhe P.

The reasons given s that the placing of 'the.aheily on.the ocatioii chosen by result in an increase in cartage charg- es due to the fact that all merchandise vould have to be hauled over the n-idge, making; a very heavy 'hnul in either' direction.

By bringing the east- end'of the freight sheds even with the west side of Fifth street, the sheds not in- terfere with the background of Gait park, while ,at the same time they would be close to the business por- tlon of the city.
